The training is based at UC Irvine Medical Center, Orange County's only Level I trauma center and certified comprehensive stroke center.

The medical center's UC Irvine Health Douglas Hospital has advanced neuroimaging capabilities, including a 3-tesla MRI and a 64-slice CT scanner.

Fellows are expected to teach residents and medical students and lead the journal club.

Fellows are exposed to a wide variety of cases and are expected to become proficient in ventilator management, ventriculostomy management, and reading continuous EEG recordings. They also are expected to master various procedural skills, including traditional and ultrasound-guided central venous line placement, arterial line placement, multi-modality monitoring, lumbar puncture, and endotracheal intubation.

The Fellowship program is designed to provide extensive training in patient safety, quality improvement, quality monitoring and reporting.
Upon completion of the fellowship, fellows will be experienced in managing a wide range of neurological, neurosurgical, and medical critical care conditions.
